--- Comment #1 from Christoph Anton Mitterer <calestyo at scientia.net> ---
Rethinking that again (which I probably should have done more carefully
before) I'll close this as invalid:

Both gssapi-with-mic (and gssapi-keyex) and hostbased won't query the

- If a kerberos ticket is there, it will be used if gasapi-with-mic
comes first and one doesn't need to interact.
- If no kerberos ticket is there, gssapi-with-mic auth will fail
(respectively not tried at all) and ssh will try hostbased auth. Thus
no interaction either.

And then I think it's better to prefer the gssapi-* methods over
anything else, because if forwarding of credentials is enabled then the
user probably wants this, which wouldn't happen if hostbased kicks in

Sorry for the noise O:-)
